Throughout the second year, each student works in rotating teams of 4-5 students on various corporate finance consulting engagements. Each team consists of four MBA students and two undergraduate finance students (selected from the Investment Banking Club) who provide research assistance. Students apply technical, theoretical financial tools and concepts to analyze problems. The outcome is to improve decision making, and develop recommendations to the client(s). The teams wrap up the project by presenting their recommendations to the client/company and its high-level executives.

CFIB projects present a wide variety of complex challenges such as working capital management, funding sources, valuation, cost of capital, capital expenditure decisions, acquisition analysis, and joint venture and strategic alliances, The industry varies but for the most part they include investment banks, public corporations, private companies, consulting firms, and start-up companies.
